The Columbia Encyclopedia is a one-volume encyclopedia[2] produced by Columbia University Press and in the last edition, sold by the Gale Group.[1] First published in 1935,[3] and continuing its relationship with Columbia University, the encyclopedia underwent major revisions in 1950 and 1963;[2] the current edition is the sixth, printed in 2000. It contains over 51,000 articles totaling some 6.5 million words and has also been published in two volumes.

An electronic version of the encyclopedia is available, and the Columbia Encyclopedia is licensed by several different companies for use over the Internet.[4][5] This encyclopedia's electronic edition, which is marked up in SGML, is updated on a quarterly basis and contains over 84,000 hyperlinked cross-references. Unlike many other major English-language encyclopedias, the complete content of the Columbia encyclopedia is available online to individual users without payment.
